Noticeboard

If you or a member of your household have COVID symptoms:

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 however mild, you must self-isolate for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19 – go to testing to arrange. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

If you are not experiencing symptoms but have tested positive for COVID-19 you also must self-isolate for at least 10 days, starting from the day the test was taken. If you develop symptoms during this isolation period, you must restart your 10-day isolation from the day you develop symptoms.

After 10 days, if you still have a temperature you should continue to self-isolate and seek medical advice over the telephone, DO NOT go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital. 

If you live with others, all other household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the household became ill or if they do not have symptoms, from the day their test was taken. If anyone else in the household starts displaying symptoms, they must stay at home for at least 10 days from when their symptoms appear, regardless of what day they are on in their original 14-day isolation period. 

ISOLATING means:

  • Do not leave the house for any reason
  • Do not go shopping
  • Do not go to your neighbours
  • Do not visit your family
  • Do not allow anyone who does not live with you, to enter your house
  • Do not visit your GP, pharmacy or hospital

COVID Assessment Hub

In response to coronavirus (COVID-19), walk-in services across Oldham are changing temporarily to protect patients, staff and the wider local community. NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has taken emergency steps to protect patients, staff and public to prevent the spread of the virus.

The walk-in centre based at the Integrated Care Centre (ICC), New Radcliffe Street, Oldham OL1 1NL, is now closed until further notice.

The ICC in Oldham now houses a COVID Assessment Hub and a Digital Hub which are both open from 8am until 8pm 7 days a week.

The COVID Assessment Hub cares for patients with potential COVID-19 symptoms from across the borough. The service is only for people who have potential COVID-19 symptoms and are unwell, but do not need emergency care. Access to the service is via your GP or after contacting NHS111.

The Digital Hub provides support to Oldham Care Homes and patients who have an urgent non-emergency care need for non COVID-19 health issues where appropriate. This service is strictly by appointment only following a referral from NHS111 or a healthcare professional, including Accident & Emergency.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill in a form prior to your appointment with the practice nurse for your vaccinations. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to fill in this form as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel as the nurse will need to look at this form to determine which vaccinations you will need. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your appointment with the Practice Nurse then needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
